Small stuff today, a lot of small stuff,
I got my scanner back and scanned the
two pictures of Rika Matsumoto I was talking about, you can find them
here and here.
Ayako Kawasumi also got two new pictures,
they are not entirely new because they are screenshots from a video from
which I already had a screenshot before. Located here
I rewrote most of the comments and added
some to several gallery pictures. I decided to do those comments in english
only now. Of course my german is much better, but it's just awkward to
have those german bits in all that english stuff.
And I've added a bunch of new anime roles:
The Seiyuu Directory
got another update, nothing but new pictures. There is one
really weird picture from Koyasu Takehito, I wonder where they got that.
Big Escaflowne themed update today.
The anime catogory got its 10th site with
and it's by far the biggest. There are 35 listed roles and that's not even
complete, those who did not made it in are minor characters whose seiyuu
aren't that well known.
But that's not all, I also finished the
seiyuu sites for Shinichirou Miki and
Ikue Ohtani, who both have major roles in Escaflowne.
You may not believe it, but that Escaflowne
site alone was worth one full day of work. I hope it does not have any
Today's feature seiyuu is Yuuji Ueda,
the 6st male seiyuu on this site. It doesn't take a genuis to
notice the male/female balance is really off ;)
I'm a bit sorry about that, but that's
just the way it is, female seiyuu are in general more popular and it's much easier
to gather pictures for their galleries.
Anyway, Yuuji Ueda's site has 20 role
entries and 3 pictures (all 3 DVD captures).
Already one week since the last update,
well I'm back with a new seiyuu page:
A lot of sites list her as Rica Matsumoto.
I still don't know why, maybe this c serves as the destinction between
her real name and her artist name?
I'm going to use Rika, simply because that's her name is written in kanji, if it was
written in katakana, well that would be a different issue.
The gallery has already 10 pictures, but
two are missing. I forget to scan a page of AX Animation May 2000. There
are two nice pictures of her with her current hair style. But since I don't
have a scanner right now, I will add them in the next few weeks.
In other news, the guys over at Seiyuu Directory
finally updated their site again. They have some new pictures
of Ayako Kawasumi, Kikuko Inoue, Megumi Hayashibara and Nana Mizuki.
Today's addition is Satsuki Yukino,
the 23rd Seiyuu page. All 7 gallery pictures are from the first
Love Hina Concert, that's all I had to work with.
That page does not have any links, sure
I found some sites about her, but nothing really worth linking to. And
that's strange considering Satsuki is a Seiyuu who has done a lot of important
Also did some minor stuff, most notable
is Yui Horie's role in Orphen which I've added.
It's about time for an update, the site
for Yukari Tamura is now finished and
uploaded. 7 roles and 6 gallery pictures, which consist of one scan from
AX Animation Magazine and 5 DVD screenshots.
While searching for Yukari's official site
I found an interesting seiyuu related site which I didn't knew before:
It doesn't have any seiyuu information,
just gallerys similar to those of this site. Half the links are down, though.
Still pretty nice.
The official I''s Website now offers some
seiyuu videos for download:
af_is.mov: Kumi Sakuma and Takahiro Sakurai
rep_iti.mov: Takahiro Sakurai
rep_itjo.mov: Kazuya Ichijou
rep_isi.mov: Akira Ishida
rep_iori.mov: Kumi Sakuma
rep_itu.mov: Tamaki Nakanishi
I think it was time for a new anime site.
I decided to do Pretear because I just finished
watching the show yesterday and the cast is pretty interesting. Most of
the roles are done by promising newcomers but there is also a good amount
of popular seiyuu in it who are doing rather unusual characters, Yui Horie
as a villain for the first time I think and Takehito Koyasu as a small
bald guy and not a bishounen.
And don't bother to click on the links
for Yuuji Ueda, Satsuki Yukino and Yukari Tamura, they are not working yet.
I finished the site for another famous
Seiyuu: Yumi Touma.
17 role entries and thanks to the VCD
that came with the December 2000 issue of AX Animation Magazine 10 pictures.
I also added two new roles for Megumi Hayashibara.
Actually I had prepared the picture for her role in Vampire
Hunter D: Bloodlust a long time ago, just forgot to add it the last time
because it isn't listed at Hitoshi Doi's site.
Today's update are two new seiyuu pages
for Mariko Kouda and
Atsushi Kisaichi (finally a male again ^_-).
Both have only 5 pictures and I'm really
not happy with the quality of some of those pictures... oh well.
With this update, this site now has 20
seiyuu pages and only 1 link on the Kanon page remains not working.
It took a while, but its now up, a site
for the probably most well known Seiyuu today,
The pics in her gallery consist of 6 scans
(IIrc all from Newtype) and 4 screenshots from the first Love Hina Concert.
This concert video is an incredible useful source... :)
Btw, the birthdays of Ayako Kawasumi and
Megumi Hayashibara are almost the same (3.30.1976 for Ayako and 3.30.1967
I noticed because I'm always using Ayako's
site as something like a template.
Nothing really new today, just a lot of
new roles for Aya Hisakawa and
Aya Hisakawa is now by far in the lead
with 27 roles, Kikuko Inoue and Ayako Kawasumi are second with 20.
As promised the site for Azumanga Daioh
is now up along with Yuu Asakawa, Tomoko Kaneda
and Sakura Nogawa.
I have not assigned any leading roles
on that Azumanga page, this show just doesn't have any.
Tomoko Kaneda and Sakura Nogawa only have
scanned pictures from Bomb Bomb Voice articles in Newtype, no screenshots
Yuu Asakawa has 2 scans from Animage and
8 screenshots from the first Love Hina Concert in Osaka. The strange thing
is, after I did those screenshots I searched the web for sites about her
and found Paul Camoron's Fansite, and what do you know? He has screenshots
from that concert too and most of them are almost the exact same frame
as mine, really scary o_O
But his screenshots have better quality
because he obviously had the DVD to work with and I not.
Added Ayako Kawasumi's Roles in Mamotte Shugogetten and Princess Nine.
The pictures for Rie Tanaka I had weren't
bad, but all were from her head only, so I scanned a picture
where you can see more of her, its only in black and white though.
I also scanned a nice high quality picture
from AX Animation Magazine of Maaya Sakamoto, you can see it here.
And two new pictures for Yui Horie, one
scanned from Newtype the other from Animage.
The site for Mayumi Iizuka
is now up with 10 roles and 10 pictures (4 scans and 6 DVD screenshots).
And added one new role for Rie Tanaka, that's about it for today.
Next update probably will be an Azumanga
Daioh Special, I have collected pictures for Yuu Asakawa, Tomoko Kaneda
and Sakura Nogawa who all did roles in it. But that won't happen until
saturday or sunday.
Vandread Special today, added a site for
the seiyuu cast.
The links for Yuu Asakawa and Rika Matsumoto
there are not yet working.
Also made sites for the two main voice
actors of Vandread: Yumi Kakazu and
Yumi Kakazu has 10 full pictures, only
captures from DVDs, no high quality scans, Yoshino Hiroyuki has only
two, but one picture is really high quality.
And I've added a comment to picture number
10 of Kouichi Yamadera's Gallery. It's the
main cast from Cowboy Bebop the Movie, it might be interesting to know
who is who.
Finished the site for Kikuko Inoue,
including 20 anime roles (one of them is not yet listed at Hitoshi
Doi's Site ^_^). Thats two more than Ayako Kawasumi, new record ;)
The site has 10 full pictures of Kikuko,
most of them are from a 15 minute long talk about the Ah My Goddess Movie
together with Aya Hisakawa, Yumi Touma and Masami Kikuchi. The rest of
the pictures are from the 'Bomb Bomb Voice' article in Newtype January
And a new little service for those not so familiar with
the metric system, I converted the height and weigth measures to foot/inch
Just for the record, this was date I launched
10 Seiyuu Pages and 6 featured Anime.
